    I would look up restoration ecology. 

    Anyway this is a very broad topic. There are several ways.

    Plant appropriate local plants suited to that location and particular ecosystem. For example if you want to plant a forest of trees, you don’t do too much of service if you pick just one species of trees that is not local to the area. You need a diversity of species best able to adapt to the area and contribute to the local ecosystem. 

    Reintroduce key stone species. For example introducing beavers into California can do wonders to build up diversity in the ecosystem and protect the land from forest fires. Look it up and find out for your self if you don’t already know. 

    Either get rid of outdated dams or if the dams are necessary, retrofit them to enable the travel of aquatic creatures to either side of the dam. Also daylight rivers and streams that flow through cities, but are covered by city blocks. 

    Remediate superfund sites.
